Senior Research Associate
Room 410, Kevin Street Campus
Patrick McEvoy is a research associate at the Dublin Institute of Technology’s Antennas & High Frequency Research Centre. He received a PhD in the field of microwave antenna engineering from Loughborough University in 2007. Following his DipEE on Telecommunications and Electronics from the DIT in 1995 he worked in the Irish IT sector. In 1998 he graduated with a MEng in Electronic Communications Engineering from the University of Hull, United Kingdom. This included a six month secondment with L’Institut Supérieur d’Electronique de Paris, France where he developed an acoustic direction finding system using a DSP controlled microphone array. He joined Loughborough University’s Centre for Mobile Communications Research in 1998 to research the design of Sarantel’s debut dielectric loaded antenna products for GPS and cellular telephony applications. Focused on the development of a high-speed antenna measurement system with a laser unit and an assembly production system, he was promoted to senior research engineer in 2001. In 2004 he became a research manager for a team of twenty-five researchers.
His research interests include Electromagnetic Theory, Antenna Miniaturization for Ultra Wideband applications, Antennas for Wireless Sensor Networks, Antenna Measurements and Antennas for Global Positioning Systems.
